So today, just out of curiosity, wondering if the "challenge" was still picking up steam ... I visited the Tossing It Out blog, you know, just to see ...
I was totally blown away by the number of those participating. When I signed up I was #425. The last blog on the list is now #625. Very impressive and exciting. And they are still accepting participants.
As I mentioned in my first post about this challenge, I wanted to check out some of these interesting titles. Each listed blog is also a link to that blog, so it was easy to quickly "window shop" through a number of them. And there are some very talented writers out there. I have visited a number of these web sites, but when you have over 600 to choose from it takes a bit of time. :-)
This time while visiting each site I wanted to select blogs that I would follow for this challenge. I was hoping to select 5 to 10. At the suggestion of the challenge organizers, I was focused on finding new blogs like mine - blogs with low follower counts. Such a wonderful and simple way to support new people. In my short experience in blogging, I discovered one big advantage of following new folks. If they have a low follower count, you are better able to develop a blog relationship with them. Some of my best "blogger conversations" have occurred with folks who have 50 followers or less.
I am very much looking forward to April 1st. Let the fun begin!!
